    the sliding door on my 1998 dodge caravan does not slide without being lifted or slung with great force. I do not have the money to take it to a dealer now. I need information on what parts and how to fix it.

First, keep in mind that as you begin to remove these doors you run the risk of causing serious scratches to the paint and glass, so put some masking tape and/or plastic sheeting around both sides of the door (rear quarter panel and rear glass, front door and front door glass)
I would get a Haynes repair guide since that's what I have to work from and it will tell you step by step with pictures, what to do. It's not hard, but you need to get all of the attach points unhooked to be successful. Suggest you have a helper working with you to keep the door steady.

I have a 2005 Grand Caravan and the left power sliding door quit working.

This is listed several times, My 2005 Town & Country had the same problem until I found on this website a solution. Turn the key on, open the door from the seated position in the van and SLAM the door with button pushed 1-6 times. Mine worked the first time.

How to remove & replace a 2005 Dodge Caravan Sliding Door Motor?

Remove Negitive battery cable. Remove 2nd row seat on the side to be replaced or remove bench. You have to do this from the inside of the van with the door closed. Remove the upper trim aroud the window by lifting from the bottom & pull up and out to pop the clips free. Starting on the bottom of the side door panel lift the panel out and up do not brake the upper part around the lock pin. Remove sound proofing sheet. The door motor is at the bottom. Remove the U-Clip holding the drive flex to the motor use neddle nose pillers. Use a trim tool or pillers to reve the plastic push fasterners. If using pillers use the pillers only on the flat side. ##Note have seen motors attached with bolts. Remove motor. Instalation is reverse of removal. Note## When installing sound proof sheet aplly spray tact.

Automatic door locks do not work, they did intermitently but stopped, the horn beeps but the locks don't lock or unlock, is there a sensor, I tried to find a fuse or relay but couldn't locate one. The left...

Sounds like the Body Control Module is having issues. You can try pulling the negative battery cable for 10 mins to reset it. But most likely you will need to go to a dealer and have it either flashed (reprogramed) or replaced.

Caravan air filter

The air filter for the cabin is located inside the van, look under the glove box door there should be a plastic holder that slides to the rearward of the van pull this back and a flat plastic door will come off, the door is two parts.

Some base vans do not have this filter if you look at the bottom of this and see a 1/2 long plastic stud sticking out of the bottom there is no filter in this.
